Luxury cottages for the discerning holidaymaker

The Good Cottage Guide showcases the finest collection of luxury cottages to rent in the UK. In partnership with some of the leading holiday cottage agencies, both national and regional, our experienced team have handpicked only the premier quality cottages for your consideration.


Large luxury cottages to rent

Many groups, whether families or friends, are opting for large luxury cottages rather than the more conventional choice of a hotel or a couple of holiday homes for a short break or longer stay together. Finding large luxury cottages to rent together, whether for a birthday, anniversary, a festive break at Christmas and New Year, or just spending quality time together, can make these occasions truly memorable.

The Good Cottage Guide only features the best 4 and five 5 luxury cottages as rated by independent assessors from the national tourist boards, or occasionally by the cottage agencies themselves. Five stars is the highest quality rating and therefore our 5 Star luxury cottages are the best of the best. You can expect the Wow Factor when you enter one of these outstanding holiday homes for your short break or longer stay, and we’re sure you won’t be disappointed. Click here

Luxury coastal cottages

As an island nation, surrounded by seas and ocean, it comes as no surprise that many people are drawn to our beautiful coastline. A seaside holiday is a great British tradition and it is easy to see why luxury cottages by the sea are so popular. In complete contrast some of our luxury coastal cottages can be found along stretches of dramatic, wild coastline where you can enjoy bracing walks on the beach or over a headland. Click here
